Non-executive Director - Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust is seeking a new Non-Executive Director to join the Board with experience at senior/board level and the right qualities to help take the Trust forward and promote the interests of the trust's service users.

At Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust we provide a wide range of health and social care services across South East London and specialise in community health, mental health and learning disability services. We are one of the most forward-looking and successful healthcare providers in the country and we have worked hard to develop an organisational culture focused on the delivery of excellent care, valuing people and placing the needs of service users at the centre of decision making. We have won numerous accolades over the years and have been regularly rated as one of the Health Service Journal’s Best Places to Work in the NHS; in addition, the diversity of our Board has been highlighted as good practice.

Our focus on partnership working has led to the creation of several ground-breaking partnerships, including Bexley Care and the South London Mental Health and Community Partnership and we have a strong reputation for excellence and innovation and high performance, which has led the Care Quality Commission to award us a rating of “Good” in all domains.

We are now seeking a new Non-Executive Director to join our Board with experience at senior/board level and the right qualities to help take the Trust forward and promote the interests of our service users. We are particularly keen to consider candidates who have clinical expertise - or experience in decision making in clinical settings - or experience in legal settings, although this is not essential.

If you have the vision and commitment to keep the Trust at the forefront of developments in the NHS and the expertise needed to make a real contribution, we want to hear from you. We are an inclusive employer and welcome applicants from all backgrounds to ensure that our Board reflects the diversity of our communities and encourages diversity of thought.
